Chechnya has become a target for human rights organizations, which “catch the hype on the problems that they themselves invent”. The radio station “Moscow speaking” said the Minister for national policy, external relations, press and information Dzhambulat Umarov, commenting on the report of human rights defenders about “honour killings”.
“This is another attempt to blacken our region, to put him in some cave in such a society, execution, violence and human rights violations. It is time, I think, to end this”, he said.
Umarov added that he believes the investigation of crimes in the North Caucasus “the last agony of the so-called liberal forces,” and assured that he would fight with such publications “to the end”.
Previously, the project “Legal initiative” published the results of the report, according to which victims of “honour killings” in Dagestan, Ingushetia and Chechnya from 2013 to 2017 was 39 women. The massacre was committed by close relatives (fathers, brothers, uncles) after the rumors that were spread by the villagers. After the crime the victim was missing.
Only 42 percent of these murders, the perpetrators fall under the court: not only the villagers, but law enforcement officers tend to justify the killers “for reasons of honour”. The killer is “missing” in 2010 and was found strangled two years later, 22-year-old resident of Dagestan, her uncle, was sentenced to seven years in prison after allegations that she “disgraced” the family and he “”washed away the stain” kind”.
